Auckland based Mad Scientist Audio is just about to release a major new series of three innovative and unique types of interconnects. The new trio of cables all use treated carbon-fibre bundles in the signal conductors, with differing kinds of earth conductors featuring a range of copper and silver OCC wire and foils. We have teamed up with Mad Scientist Audio again, this time to give away two prizes. First prize will be a YANAM (You and the Night and the Music) interconnect, which uses silver and copper OCC wire and copper foil earth worth NZ$549 and second prize will be ATOH (A Taste of Honey) interconnect worth NZ$299 (with copper OCC earth). Look out for a review of YANAM in a forthcoming issue of Hi-Fi+.As always with Mad Scientist Audio, carbon fibre was chosen as a result of a series of painstaking trials. Two dozen different wire types were put to test, as signal conductor and earth conductor, before carbon fibre was selected.
What material does each interconnect use for its signal conductors?
A. Carbon Fibre bundles
B. Individual strands of depleted uranium
C. Teflon coated rhodium
